Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences

The Faculty of Social & Behavioural Sciences is known as a leader in education and research in the social and behavioural sciences. Its focus is on the disciplines of interdisciplinary social sciences, cultural anthropology, educational sciences, pedagogy, psychology and sociology. We use this expertise to contribute to the formation of talented students in a wide array of degree programmes, and to increased understanding of a range of social issues. To achieve this we frequently work together with social organisations.

The faculty has around 850 employees and over 5,600 students.
